I have had my proofer for almost a year. Within two days of receiving this appliance my slow cooker stopped working. Fortunately, I had the proofer, so I quickly set it up, put the pan in, and kept my fingers crossed that it would work. No worries; it was absolutely perfect! My husband thought it might work wonders on a cheesecake, so we tried that out within the first week of having the proofer. It took hours to set, but the smoothness was unequaled. I did another one yesterday, this time using an old familiar recipe. It took 6.5 hours to set, using the highest slow cooker setting. Today we sliced into it, and it was hands-down the best texture we have ever had in this cheesecake. I would absolutely recommend exploring this idea further. Oh, and yes, I pull it out often to proof bread; as others have stated it provides an even temperature for rising, no matter the time of year. I've done sourdough, no-knead, dinner rolls, multi-grain, and cinnamon rolls, among other types. I cannot imagine going back to my old way of doing things!
I used the Proofer for the first time last evening and when I checked on my dough this morning, everything looked fine. I think I have a winner here. I also put my sourdough starter into the Proofer along with the bread dough and it rose beautifully. I am hoping that going forward my doughs will proof as nicely as my dough did just now. I am looking forward to using this Proofer As a regular part of my bread making routine. It is really so important to proof your dough in a temperature controlled environment, wow really impressive.
I recently used the Brod &Taylor Proffer for the first time. It decreased the time it took to proof the bread and the loaves of bread came out of the oven looking better than using the water bath method. The only drawback is the power cord can not be stored in the unit.
I'm loving this proofer so far. Good quality, easy assembly, and foldable, so it takes up little space when not in use.
